I’ve googled and the answers I find seem to relate to chronic or accident-induced pain. That’s not the issue here - I least I don’t think it is.
Yesterday, my husband and I spent almost 3 hours walking around at a motorcycle show - mainly on concrete flooring or pavement outdoors. I was wearing walking shoes with (I believe) good arch support, and I didn’t have them tied too tightly. And while I do work at a desk, I also go to the gym 3-4 times a week and either use the treadmill or the stationary bikes, so I’m not a total lump.
When I woke this morning and got out of bed, my feet felt as if someone whacked the tops with a substantial mallet. It’s as if both feet are severely bruised, but there’s no discoloration. I didn’t trip or drop anything on them, and I also spent about 5 hours sitting in the car yesterday between going to and coming home from the motorcycle show, so I did get to rest them.
Unless it persists a few more days or it becomes impossible to walk, I see no reason to go to the Dr, assuming someone here doesn’t convince me I have foot cancer or onset metatarsal deterioration or something equally dire. Mostly, I’m curious as to why I hurt like this. Is this just something that happens when you get old and start to fall apart? I am 60 after all…
